Online Education and Creative Writing
by Sunder Venkataram
I want to learn Creative Writing through your online education web site.
Hi Kevin! I was so pleased to go through your site on online education.
I was interested to take up a creative writing program in the United States by enrolling in one of the universities there. This was more than 20 years ago.
I live in Mumbai, India. Due to one reason or the other I could not go to the U.S. to study. But I pursued my study through the U.S.I.S. libraries in India.
Today I am a freelance journalist living in India. I wonder if you can help me and if so please give me all details.
I will be indeed grateful to you.
Kevin’s Answer: Hello Sunder! How are you? It is a pleasure to meet you. Thanks for taking the time to explore my online education school.
Yes, you will be able to learn creative writing through my school.
There are a few different types of creative writing. Here is a list of a few common types of writing…
- Poetry and poems
- Playwriting – the writing of plays and live stage plays
- Biographies – stories about people
- Graphic novels and comic books
- Memoirs and autobiographies – self writings about the author
- Short stories
- Screenwriting – movies, films, tv shows
Each of these types of creative writing can be based on real-life events or imaginary events.
In the next month or two (November 2013 – December 2013), my online film school will be open, up and running with several part-courses available.
- The classes are free and will be available 24 hours every day and 7 days every week.
My film school online will only focus on the Screenwriting type of creative writing
